My Thrift Chic Journey

Today is the first day of Eco Fashion Week, I am actually watching the live streaming as I type out this post.

April 6th is the day that I got the call. From a simple twitter inquiry to conversing with the lovely Sonja Henrickson over the phone my Thrift Chic journey for Eco Fashion Week began.

Eco Fashion Week, Thrift chic challenge by value village

$500, 7 Value Villages and 15 outfits later, brings me to the day before the show.

I am no stranger to trudging through the isles in search of that next one-of-a-kind treasure. It felt like this challenge was made for me!

$500 goes a long way at Value Village, especially paired with their current 30% off promotion.

My involvement even drew the attention of Social Mod PR and Rachel wrote such a lovely piece on my experience for Thrifty and Green.

I hope my collection can do the eco-community proud. I love the idea of being Thrift Chic for any situation and under any circumstance.

Aside from saving massive dough, you are also helping out charitable organizations and being Eco-conscious to boot.

I can't wait to post the photos of the show afterwards. In the mean time, here is a teaser with a tally of all the money I spent on this collection. Thank you Savings Pass for making it possible for me to complete the challenge.

Here are the four seasons and how affordable they are.
